30-minute weekly radio program for April 6, 2010. "False-flag" ops are incidents used to justify war or abolition of civil liberties. These incidents are staged, or misrepresented, or imaginary.
I review the major types of "false-flag operations"--with details on the battleship Maine (1898) and US Air Force provocations of the USSR during the Cuban Missile Crisis (1962). Guess who saved the world in 1962. Nikita Khrushchev! Then ex-MI-5 agent ANNIE MACHON discusses terrorism by both sides in Northern Ireland (1990s), operations Gladio (post-WWII) and Northwoods (1962), & 9-11. Last, she details the huge loss of civil liberties in the UK following 9-11.
CORRECTION: In the program I state that the Maine probably exploded from spontaneous combustion of damp "black powder" (gunpowder). The Navy has concluded that spontaneous combustion of COAL ignited the powder in an adjacent storeroom. The Navy's brief & judicious history of the Maine is here: http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/m2/maine-i.htm.
